Phil Gordon on Crime



AZ must stay vigilant; threats can come from anyone

We must continue to be vigilant to any activity that looks suspicious. Threats can come from anyone, no matter their physical appearance or dress, so we must take care not to assume certain types of people represent a greater or lesser degree of danger.

Here in Phoenix the best possible public safety team has been working since before 9/11 to keep us safe. Today, there is no pending credible threat against our community. But in matters such as these, we must take every possible precaution.
